Default Engine swap/Easy start question.

Im looking to swap out an old Traxxas .15 engine for a XTM .18 I got of Ebay, now my question is, it came without a pull start and Im wondering if there is a way to use the Easy Start off the .15 with the XTM engine.

if the backplate fits then it should work. if it doesn't fit then theres nothing you can do. as long as the engine is run in right pull starts are no problem.

Actually what I ended up doing was taking the backplate of my old pro. 15 and machining it down to fit in our lathe at the shop were I work, it doesnt look pretty (Its only the second time Ive touched a lathe) but its fits, as soon as I get my engine mounts I guess I'll see if it starts, I use a pull start in my other trucks but I wanted an electric start in one.
